Cyclists across the UK have joined a World Naked Bike Ride to protest against non-renewable energy sources and to raise awareness of cycle safety.

Yesterday Bristol hosted a WNBR ride, while in the last fortnight nine othercities including Brighton, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London saw riders demonstrate against oil dependency.

Now in its fourth year in the UK, the bike ride represents a growing move towards energy efficiency, say experts.

Nick Proctor, Director of energy management firm amberEnergy said: “We believe a ʻsnowballʼ effect can be created, in reducing energy consumption and mobilising a work-force, even in a small business with limited resources.”

Across the world, Israel, New Zealand, Taiwan, Japan and Germany are just some of the countries where cyclists took part.
